Can India call the shots?
The wretched lot of Hindus in Bangladesh (going on and on ever since 1947) does not shock anyone any longer; it has become a daily affair (almost ) depicting Hindus, if they opt for to inhabit Bangladesh, would have to endure such Islamic atrocities. At this juncture, when an atmosphere of gloominess do prevail all the way, efforts of a few Indians, however minuscule those are, to call this grave violation of human rights a halt draw our admiration.
And indeed as part of a spectacular development, CPIM, known for its every harangue against Hindus (for decades), has come forward and asked the current ruling clique at New Delhi to amend the Citizenship Act to render citizenship to masses of refugees from Bangladesh, both prior to and following its formation. Prakash Karat, general secretary of CPIM, in the letter to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh has been learnt to refer to "the citizenship problems of the large number of refugees from erstwhile East Bengal and then even after the formation of Bangladesh who had to flee their country in particular historic circumstances over which they had no control". It has also been learnt that the consensus in Parliament in this regard during NDA regime has also been mentioned in the letter.
Karat, in his letter, has quoted Singh's speech in Parliament, Leader of Opposition in Rajya Sabha then, when NDA government had brought the Citizenship Amendment Bill 2003.
